My neighbour’s twelve year old son is a cripple. He can’t use his left hand, as other children do. It is very thin and weak. He is lame in one leg and he hobbles when he walks. With all these physical weaknesses he is very cruel to animals. Whenever he sees a stray dog, a cat or a bird, he slings pebbles at it.

When the animals cry and flee in pain in pain, the boy watches them with a big smile.

The neighbours say that this boy had killed a large number of birds and squirrels with his deadly catapult.

I am sure this boy doesn’t like to get hit by things thrown at him by others.

Then why can’t he understand that animals too don’t like such hurtful treatment?
